Handbooks Update: September 23, 2014

Present today were @blobaugh, @sewmyheadon, and @topher1kenobe, with a few devhub peeps following along as we overlapped slightly. Logs are here.

  • PluginPlugin A plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website. They can extend functionality or add new features to your WordPress websites. WordPress plugins are written in the PHP programming language and integrate seamlessly with WordPress. These can be free in the WordPress.org Plugin Directory https://wordpress.org/plugins/ or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party handbook: Topher worked on section 8 (metadata) and section 9 (CPTs and taxonomies) and both are now at 100%. Ben will be out of town for the next two chats.
  • Theme handbook: No updates this week. Hopefully some more next week.
  • MigrationMigration Moving the code, database and media files for a website site from one server to another. Most typically done when changing hosting companies. update: A bunch of the plugin handbook has been migrated with more being migrated this week.
